Wow ...

Ok, I don't know what NVIDIA managed to do with those drivers, but they are definitely the best ones I've ever tried. Here's something strange guys. I scored around 30 Marks lower with the 160.02's in 3DMark06 compared to the 158.27's, but, when I play real games the increase in frames-per-second is absolutely astonishing !

Look at this, I just ran a test with Lost Planet, and see the results for yourselves:

http://img524.imageshack.us/img524/2088/wowcu9.th.png (http://img524.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wowcu9.png)

Note that my GTS was at stock speed ! (513/792), only my CPU and Memory are slightly OC'ed, respectively to 2.42Ghz and 440Mhz, which is almost negligible.

Everything is maxed (Shadows at Medium since that's the maximum setting for DX9), no AA, 8x AF, at 1024x768. The thing is that the last time I tried that test at the exact same settings I had around 15 FPS less in Snow and around 10 FPS less in Cave, so those new drivers literally increased my average FPS by around 15% to 20% compared to my previous test.

Then, I tried with S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and bam ! Same thing, very noticeable FPS increase, especially for the minimum frames I got. It remained smooth, constant all the time, and I run that game at 1280x960 with 16x AF, along with a few extra textures packs, and guess what ? The bloody "pauses" people experienced so much (which I did as well to some extent) completely disappeared !

Those drivers are magic I say. You guys should at least give them a try.

Oh, and, something else it "fixed" for me, is that in Oblivion, whenever and wherever I used a torch I would get some major FPS drop, well, with those new drivers it's entirely gone, my FPS are constant and lowering only when they should and not for strange reasons.

Awesome stuff NVIDIA !

Maybe these are a sign of things to come.

Question Zenoth, why only at 1024x768? With that CPU and GPU, you could easily go higher res. Also, was that with VSync off?

Anyone have mirrors? Both 32-bit and 64 are broken.. file cannot be found.

Last 160 driver i tried was 160.03, and that had a issue where closing PowerDVD Ultra caused BSOD. Hope this driver doesn't do that.

What is the date of these drivers? Are they newer than the 158.27's?

The date is 26/04/2007, however during setup it only asked to replace 1 file that was older.

Also the PowerDVD issue from the other 160 driver is gone :D

Keepers unless something goes wrong.
